As soon as I opened the packaging, I broke the battery compartment tab somehow. I was trying to open it, and had trouble pushing the tabs in to open the compartment. One of the tabs broke off completely, and now the compartment won't close unless taped shut. I didn't do a good enough job with the tape I guess, and the batteries kept coming loose, resulting in loss of function when the flashlight was pointing in any direction except down. So I guess the moral is to be careful when opening the battery compartment, and be sure to pinch in both side tabs so that one doesn't break off. I do have an issue with the tab being able to break so easily, it's a really thin piece of plastic. The side lantern, the radio, and the siren are adequate. The flashlight beam seems really wide and scattered, resulting in limited brightness compared to other flashlights I have used. I use this product on camping trips, and wish it was a little more durable, but for the price it's ok.
